This week, I’ve made it a goal to go to the gym more. I’ve been slacking on my exercise so I knew I needed to step it up. Yesterday, I woke up at 5:00am and went to the gym! It was great. I was executing the plan. However, this morning was a little different. As soon as I woke up at 5:00am, I had a headache. I rolled out of bed and took some headache medicine and starting contemplating whether or not to go to the gym.
I had to stop myself and say “REALLY?!?!” I have a headache and I’m trying to go work out. I believe sometimes we try to pass our limits! Yes the work must be done but at what cost? I knew it wouldn’t be a smart idea to workout with a headache, but yet there I was at 5:20am still thinking about going. I then realized that I need to rest. My mind is saying GO but my body was saying NO! So I got back in bed and laid down.
We have to pull the plug every now and then. The work will get done. Take care of your body. You can’t work at your best if you’re not feeling your best. I had to remind myself that today.
Do you ever pull the plug every now and then or do you push your body to dangerous limits?
